Colorful Home Tour | Summer 2020 | Jewel Marlowe

We are living the simple life here this summer, but find joy in our colorful home chocked full of a flock of kids. ¬†That’s a good thing too because we are seeing a LOT of both the kids and the house these days…maybe you can relate. ūüėú. ¬†The family continues to be kind enough to put up with my constant changes. With every new project completed, our house feels more and more like a home.

Colorful Home Tour

¬† Today’s colorful home tour, It’s a Colorful Life | Snapshot of Summer ¬†was conceived by my friend Jennifer from Dimples and Tangles. If you haven’t seen her new master bathroom then you definitely need to go check it out when you wrap up here. ¬†Don’t forget to click the links at the bottom to see her tour and the lovely homes of all of the other participants in today’s hop.

We’ve been busy since the Spring Colorful Home Tour. Since then, we have finished an office, a closet, a bathroom, a sunroom, and most recently a dining room refresh. ¬†The house still isn’t finished and I continue to have big plans for the future.

If you like our colorful home, please feel free to “Pin” for later.

Saturday I wrapped up a few refreshes for the dining room. ¬†Interestingly, I have enjoyed the challenge of learning to work with a color that I am not naturally attracted to; the bold shade of orange. ¬†It feels fresh and daring. ¬†Will it be a permanent addition to our color scheme, or something that changes out seasonally? ¬†I’m honestly not sure yet. ¬†I want to live with it for a while before deciding. Until then, it’s been a fun give it a test drive.

Skirted buffets rank high in my book, so I was thrilled when I came up with the design concept to sew a fun/statement-making cover for our dining room credenza.  I used Fabricut fabric and fab Verymore Marmalade Chunky Tassel Fringe Trim by the yard from SmithHonig.

For the tablescape I used fruit and florals that I already had in our home and garden.  I love the idea of using fresh fruit to create colorful decor.

I used SmithHonig Shibori fabric to create napkins for this special table.  The contrast between the lacey Shibori fabric and the bright orange banding is impactful.  Plus, the napkin and Jute Tassel Napkin Ring tie together the wallpaper, fruit, natural elements, and skirted buffet.

Colorful Home | Lounge Area

Because this room connects to the dining room I wanted to add small does of orange in here as well.  To achieve this I added the Willa Heart pillow from Curated Home Decor and an old piece of art that I had stored in my basement.

Warm undertoned wood play well with the addition of orange in the over all color scheme.

Colorful Home Tour | Living Room

In the early days of COVID-19 the kids and I planted hundreds of seeds in my favorite pot. ¬†I didn’t hold out much hope that they would amount to much, but to my surprise, the seeds bloomed into a lovely coffee table piece.

Colorful Home Tour | Entryway

I added a touch of orange to the entryway as well.  These changes are temporary and could be easily removed, but I find joy in mixing it all up.

The DIY headboard was completed in one weekend, and it adds so much personality to the space.

One of my favorite parts of this space is how I DIY’ed the stripes on the¬† walls AND the desk.
